    Escorial, I notice in the pics of the scenes that inspire you to paint, there are always these POPS of color.... I wonder if that is what draws you to the pics... stark color, then the drama of that small pop of color... fabulous...

    Interesting. I've never even thought of the blowdryer. I am ADD and my impatience has never matched well with "waiting" for things to dry. So I end up with a mess. Thanks for the tip

    I'm more inclined towards the oil methodology (dark to light), and making the mental switch in watercolor is difficult.

    That said, watercolors are much easier to work with in terms of setup and cleanup, and there are no fumes to deal with. Keeping a blow-dryer handy when working in watercolors is helpful also to speed the drying time.
